Casual Person

Trivia: Rip Torn did not reprise his role of MIB director "Zed" in this third film due to legal issues stemming from a 2010 arrest. Despite not reprising the role, however, there are some unconfirmed reports Torn appears in a cameo as one of the aliens in the background of Zed's funeral, albeit under heavy makeup.

Trivia: Makeup effects artist Rick Baker has confirmed that during the film, particularly during the Coney Island scene, there are aliens hidden in the background of many shots and extras with subtle alien makeup effects added, in order to emphasize the fact that aliens had been integrated into New York City's population very subtly. Many of them require careful observation, or even going frame-by-frame to notice.

Men in Black 3 mistake picture

Continuity mistake: As the hand creature busts the shackles off Boris' legs in Lunar Max, you can see the bottoms of his pants over his metal prison boots. There are only a few folds and wrinkles over his left foot, and the pants over right foot are hardly wrinkled at all, or affected as the creature climbs up his right leg. But only a couple of seconds later, we see another shot of Boris' feet as the creature breaks off the metal sleeve of his arm, and suddenly his pants legs are very wrinkled. Boris was standing perfectly still the entire time. Boris' legs are also suddenly closer together. (00:03:35)

Question: O says that back in Cape Canaveral, in the unaltered time line, something happened to K that changed him. All that's really said though, is that he stopped and arrested Boris the Animal there. So what exactly was it that changed K?

Chosen answer: He saw J's father murdered by Boris. In the unaltered timeline, J says that his father wasn't around. We see this at the end and it's also why J was recruited into the Men In Black. K was keeping an eye on him the whole time.
